The Lalit, a luxury boutique hotel opens its massive doors in UK – the birthplace of literary wizards JK Rowling & Shakespeare! Here’s all about the first Indian Hotel in the UK.

What is it?

The hotel has 70 rooms, all different in style and layout. Guess what? Fun Fact – The old Headmaster’s room comes with a suite attached. I am sure this time you won’t mind being sent to Headmaster’s room.

Rooms on the top floor comes with 30-foot high ceilings. Sooo big and royal!

What’s special?

The hotel is housed in an 180-year-old grammar school. Almost all the rooms have different designs to ensure you don’t feel like you just entered a classroom. However, the rooms are numbered as classrooms to remind you of its history just in case you tend to forget easily.

Sitting flamboyantly right next to the legendary Tower Bridge, the place certainly seems every worth of its  £50 million refurbishments!


Four massive blue Hyderabad-style chandeliers hang from the ceiling of The Grand Room giving it a regal touch.

The hotel has retained its Indian flavour in its every inch and corner of it. However, carved ceilings and an original fireplace have been restored to perfection.

Where to eat?
